Live Updates

Hear that? It starts as a distant rumble, barely audible over the groaning misery of autumn turning to winter, but it's becoming clearer. The water on your bedside table tremors to the beat of a thousand footsteps, gathering pace and charging towards high streets across the country. Joined by millions of mouse clicks and smartphone screen taps; this is Black Friday. This is the Biggest Shopping Day Of The Year (Until Boxing Day), and it's finally here.

Anyway, let's just get to the deals shall we? This blog went live at 6am and will be updated throughout the day by the IBTimes UK technology team, as and when we find the best deals from across the web. Here's your starter for 10.

And so, as the sun sets on another Black Friday we are drawing this live blog to a close. Of course, most sales will be ploughing right on through the weekend, Cyber Monday and probably all the way to Christmas. There is no real end to Black Friday, and for 2016 a clearly defined start was missing-in-action too.

Anyway, we hope you found yourselves some cracking deals. Goodbye.

  • £80 gift card - When you buy an iPad Pro, iPad Air 2 or iPad mini 4
